Fall Boyfriend, Craigslist


Well, it's worth a shot, right?

As summer comes to an end, singles are reminded that cuffing season is upon us. For those who are unaware about what cuffing season is, it occurs during the fall-winter months when the weather gets colder and the holidays roll by one after another, and those who usually prefer to be free and unattached decide to become "cuffed" or tied down in a serious relationship.

In an attempt to stay ahead of the game, two "smart, funny, attractive" New York ladies have put together a Craigslist ad in hopes of finding two "fall boyfriends," and they didn't hold back when it came to their requirements.

Aside from stating that they are "looking for boys we might be able to stand being sober around," the unidentified single gals want guys who are "interested in something steady/serious-ish as the weather fades from hot, humid, and care-free to crisp, chill Patagonia vest season."

Additionally, "Interested parties should have a window in their bedroom and want to cuddle with the window slightly open to let the fresh autumn air in while a fall scented candle (that I'll buy for you, babe) fills the room with cozy comfort."

To be considered, the potential fall boyfriends must have a "chill group of guy friends," be 27 years of age or older, at least 6-feet tall and an Ivy League-educated former frat boy who enjoys wearing loafers (among other things). The lucky chosen ones will participate in activities like apple-picking, Sunday fundays, selfie-taking, brunches and cooking.

Now, this may shock you, but the post was done in good humor, and chances are there aren't actual Manhattan girls using the popular website to find boy-toys...unless, it actually works. Then we've all learned something.

Their fake ad concludes with, "Strange how the night moves, with autumn closing in (If you don't know that song, don't apply)."

(It's from Bob Seger's "The Night Moves." You're welcome.)
